I would like to hear opinions on the following offer: The position is as a traders assistant/clerk for a commodities market maker firm on the floor of the NYBOT . Training lasts between a 18 and 24 months. Salary while training is 35k/year, and I was told that after training, as a trader, avg. income was between 250k-500k a year (dont know is this is BS or not). For the interview, I just spoke with one of the traders, who asked me a bunch of Math questions.. mostly probability questions and some other do-in-your-head computation questions.. Anyone have any insight?
